Good show I especially liked the first set. Excellent sounding digital sbd. I'm giving this three stars but I'm not a huge fan of the post Brent era. For those of you who are you can call this a four or even five star show.

Thsi show was a very special moment. It was the first Help>slip>Franklins ever played at Cal Expo. The day was like 90 degrees and sunny- typical for sacramento. But this day was very special. I personally had a great spot on the floor and was with a warm group of poeple. The place was awesome. The help slip says it all. The one at Shoreline a few days later was just as hot. The interesting song in this bunch suprisingly is Picao Moon. It shreds!!! I know its odd but it really does.

Super then and super now 5 stars!!

way better than I remember. Check this out to hear the "living room" version of the boys--minus the Vince parts, this is classic. Nice sound and well-played.

The setlist from Terrapin Station on is the same as 6.25.88[my 1st show].
The last 6 songs in order,pretty strange?

Another great show from a satisfying run at Cal Expo.
The Help on the Way isn't as good as the other versions with Hornsby (6/14/91 may be the best), but this one is makes a respectable way to start off the show. The pre-drums in the second set is the jewel of this show, and the band seemed reluctant to leave the stage. I remember when I was at the show trying to use telepathy to tell the band to keep playing "don't end with Truckin, play one more". I guess it worked. The transition from Truckin to Terrapin is unique with hints of a Spanish-sounding jam. The jam out of Terrapin is also Stellar.
